All these underscored words are driving me cRaZy!
How about  you?
On some of my posts, words are underscored so many times the whole word is cut off.
Who does this and why?  I can see  how on some words it could be helpful but other words leave me clueless as to why they are even underscored???

Yeah there are some issues with the forums lately. These new underlined words are supposedly for advertising I think. I have alerted the administrator, because I keep getting "operation aborted" and "script errors" messages too.

I don't really understand it either...for medical terms it's relevant, but words in my posts like "beautiful" were underscored. Who needs a definition for that?

I don't see any of that. I use Firefox with an ad blocker turned on, so it must do away with the underscores. There's also just white space on the side, which is where I assume ads must be.
